It’s time for another edition of Frodo’s Hobbit Sized Reviews! This is where I write a review in the time I have before I go to work or before I go to bed. Short and sweet just like 2nd breakfast!
I found someone mentioning this short story collection on twitter and thought it looked like it could be pretty interesting, I mean who doesn’t love dragons? Unfortunately I can’t say that I enjoyed any of them. All three short stories felt disjointed and they lacked any cohesiveness or any direction. Worse still I couldn’t see a purpose in any of them, there was no “moral of the story” moment in any and maybe they would make more sense if I read full length novels, or even novellas of these stories afterward, but in and of themselves I don’t get them at all. Oh well, even stories of dragons aren’t impervious to some…flops. Thanks as always for reading.
